As on 8th July, against a total number of 6,61,352 persons, who had registered their request with the Missions abroad for repatriation to India, over 5, 80,000 have returned. 
This number includes more than 97,000 Indians who have returned through land border immigration checkpoints from Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh.
